    William I am unable to comment under your poems so I will say this about the piece entitled 'Sometimes I think I am Dorian Gray'...

    Elegant, memorable and satisfying to read. I love the way you have assumed the voice of the narcissist in such an involving, convincing way that draws the reader in.

Best Poem of William Jackson

When Dawn Spread Out Her Fingertips Of Rose

When Dawn spread out her fingertips of rose,
we went down to the sea, and there in the shallows,
in a protected place, you lay on your back in the brine,
gently buffeted by the incoming tide as I carefully upheld you
in my arms.

The small of your back rested upon the palm of my left hand,
and I cradled your face in the crook of my right arm.
Every now and again, I turned my back to the swells
to stop a rogue wave from crashing over you,
to protect your eyes from the stinging spray.

All the while your auburn hair spread out like a fan,
dancing in ...

Just The Thought Of You

Just the thought of you
sends my mind reeling!
So young and full of life.
You are acquiring life's treasure,
while I am casting it off to hang
onto life itself and to pursue you.
I know it would never work out,
an April to December romance,
and I tell myself this everyday.
